    • That’s not out of line depending on how new your car is.  You might ask around and see if you can find a little independent shop where the labor might be cheaper.  

       I had a used transmission put in my old Ranger last winter and with labor and parts it was over $1000.

    • yup what kind of car? are they giving you a warranty on it? Depending on the car it sounds about right.

      most small shops do not do good warranties. So ck that before going there.

    • that’s about right, you may be able to get it for 1800 but be sure it has the same warranty.

    • That is about the right price. I purchased my Trooper and a year and a half later the transmission went out. It cost around $2800. Most of the parts are new. I also learned that you should change your transmission oil every 20 to 30K miles or according to your owner manual. Newer cars have a different schedule. We are only taught to change the engine oil but the trans is important also. Mine went out at 152K miles. I now have 263K miles on my SUV. So I have put 110K miles on the new transmission.
      I was fortunate to get a very reputable mechanic.
